Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus are done after dating for a year, E! is reporting. The news comes just hours after Shookus deleted her Instagram and days after Affleck was seen on a date with 22-year-old Playboy model Shauna Sexton. According to E!’s source, the breakup was two to three weeks ago. “They are still very amicable and have stayed friends,” a source said. “They both tried to make it work, but the distance just proved to be too much for them right now. Family comes first for them both.”

The breakup reportedly happened partly because Shookus did not plan to relocate from New York to the West Coast for Affleck, per E!. He was seen out with Shauna Sexton on a fast food date yesterday.
Affleck and Shookus’s relationship was first reported in July 2017, three months after he and his wife Jennifer Garner filed for divorce that April. Bennifer’s divorce has not been finalized, and while Affleck and Garner are taking their time with their settlement, they are at risk for the court dismissing their case due to inaction.
